When high school junior Melissa Keiser returns to her hometown of Anna Maria Island, Florida, she has one goal: hide from the bullies who had convinced her she was the ugliest girl in school. But when she is caught sneaking into a neighbor's pool at night, everything changes. Something is different now that Melissa is sixteen, and the guys and popular girls who once made her life miserable have taken notice. When Melissa gets the chance to escape life in a house ruled by her mom's latest boyfriend, she must choose where her loyalties lie between a long-time crush, a new friend, and her surfer brother who makes it impossible to forget her roots. Just as Melissa seems to achieve everything she ever wanted, she loses a loved one to suicide. Melissa must not only grieve for her loss, she must find the truth about the three boys who loved her and discover that joy sometimes comes from the most unexpected place of all.

I wrote Like Moonlight at Low Tide to tell the story of what happens to a teen girl after she has been bullied. What happens if you finally get everything you ever wanted? For Melissa Keiser, that means night swimming in the pools alongside the Gulf of Mexico and holding the hands of a big crush in the high school halls. But what happens when even all that isn't enough? If you go on this journey with Melissa, I hope you'll find hope and encouragement by the time you reach the end. I did. I am honored that my first novel has won both the ACFW "Carol Award" and "Genesis Award" for best young adult fiction, and I am even more moved by the messages I have received from young adults who write me with how they connected with Melissa. For me, that's what it's all about.From the Back Cover:
This story is not about suicide. But you should know that when I was seventeen, the only boy who ever called me by my full name took his own life. It was the first time I ever saw a mistake that was permanent, that couldn't be undone with whiteout or atoned for with an after-school detention. Nothing else I do for the rest of my life will ever be able to change this fact. This story is actually about three boys. One who loved me. One who couldn't. And one who didn't know how.
